Have used a pair of Kuiu 145g Merino zip offs the past two years and love them. Unfortunately they are starting to get holes in them (bigger and bigger). I seemed to have weakened the merino when I wrung the water out after washing in a creek. They have been worn A TON too.

I started exploring other lightweight merino zip-off options (hoping for more durability) and found SKRE and Strata.

SKRE (Weird, I know I saw zip-offs on their site the other day and now can't find them?)



Strata. Never heard of Strata before.



First Lite only has the zip off in the 250g weight, I'm wanting something lighter.

Also looking at the Kuiu Peloton 97 zip offs, I imagine they'd be more durable and just a tad warmer?



Any input on these lightweight zip offs would be appreciated!

It hurts my heart that First Lite did away with the Fuse 200 zip offs with basically no notice. I would have bought 5 more pair. I like their Merino more than Kuiu for sure. I wore my Fuse 200 zip offs almost all week last week in Wyoming.
